After the San Bruno Fire, Home owners & buyers have a lot of concern if they live near underground pipelines that could put themsevleves and their families at risk.
So for your ease, here is a link to the Federal National Pipeline Mapping System:
This shows all the major gas pipelines, above and below ground and includes storage tanks. At the current time, this is the only resource I can find. If you know something better or that can be used in addition to this, please let me know.
So, if you haven’t noticed we added a pretty cool new area onto TeamTapper.com. On the right sidebar beneath our “Featured Listings” we added a “Local Real Estate For Sale” almost every city in the Peninsula is currently setup with “pre-fabed” searches for each city. We established three common price ranges to make searching easier for you.
With these property profiles (for every home on MLS) we tried to include every piece of information that we are allowed to give the public access to. So you may find that our site as more information than other sites with similar features. So if you do find that you like our site for finding homes as you’re driving around. Go to google.com, type in the address followed by “Team Tapper” and click the first thing on Google’s list and all the information for that listing will be right there in front of you!
Click request a showing, request more information, etc. and it will send us all the information to our cell phones and a team tapper agent will contact you as soon as possible to setup a showing.
Pretty cool, huh?
Hello TeamTapper.com Readers,
By using a program called “Google Analytics“, I can see how people come to our page. We have had a lot of inbound traffic because of the map of the Carolands neighborhood map we posted a while back. I can also see that some people came looking for the address of the Carolands Mansion address but did not find the information they were looking for. So here it is, The address of the Carolands Mansion in Hillsborough, California.
If you click the link above it will take you to a satalite view of the mansion. Also be aware that the lot of the manison streches from street-to-street. Therefore, the back of the mansion can also be viewed from Craig Road in Hillsborough, CA.
There are some reasons why it is so expensive to buy real estate on the San Francisco Peninsula. Here are five:
#1 Conveniently Located to two Large Cities/Areas:
The Mid-Peninsula is just 20 minutes south of San Francisco and about 30 minutes north of San Jose/Silicon Valley. Being located in close range to two large cities allows our suburbs to be a stone’s throw from local grocery stores, downtown shopping areas, movie theaters, parks, and restaurants.
#2 The Weather:
Our weather is AMAZING! Rarely is it extremely cold or extremely hot. It rains enough to keep our reservoir stocked and our faucets working.
#3 We’re Hiring:
Always. The Bay Area is home to jobs even during the bad economy. Such renowned companies include; Genentech, Oracle, Google, Twitter, Hewlett Packard, Gap Inc., Adobe, Cisco Systems, and MANY MORE!
#4 Close to “Weekend Getaways”:
No matter where you live, every once and a while everyone needs to escape. We are close to Lake Tahoe and Reno where you can Ski/Snowboard, Go Gambling, Hiking, etc.
We are close to Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Paso Robles; home to world class wine producers. Sonoma County is also home to Sears Point/Infineon Raceway where you can watch many national race events. Or you can shoot over to Monterey home of Laguna Seca Raceway another world class race track. Monterey boasts one of the best aquariums on the west coast: Monterey Bay Aquarium is a great place to see marine biology at its finest.
Like the water? Love to surf? We have that too! Half Moon Bay is home to Mavericks – one of the world’s most extreme surf spots. We have milder waves for beginners to learn how to surf on too. But, don’t forget to wear a wetsuit, our Pacific Ocean waters are a bit chilly.
#5 The People!
Something about the people in northern California gives for great friendships. A little bit of respect and kindness goes a long way. In San Mateo/Burlingame people say, “Hello” as they pass each other walking in the morning. “Thank You” when you open a door for them, and “Happy Holidays” during the season. Needless to say, I never feel uncomfortable asking my neighbors for sugar or milk.
These are just my five reasons, Why do you like living on the Peninsula?
